Crisp modern kitchen with a bright pop of yellow

Of all the rooms in my home I think the kitchen has underwent the most decor changes. It may be because there is only 2.5 small walls to change, so really I can give it a completely different look in just an afternoon. I actually did this kitchen decor update in the spring, but put […]

Leons Hello Sunshine Magazine

It’s here, its finally here! If you’ve been watching on social media, you likely already know that I’ve teamed up with Leon’s for the 2017 edition of the Leon’s Furniture Hello Sunshine magazine. The magazine is published in hard copy and an online version which you can see by clicking here.   If you live in Ontario […]

Vintage Locker Console Table

I’ve been on a mad redecorating binge. One of those you start with a tiny space and it spills over into an entire level of your house. One little furniture project led to another, which led to painting a wall, which led to a new rug… if you give a mouse a cookie situation.  This Vintage […]

Wayfarers Ale Society, Nova Scotia

A few months back I was given the opportunity to decorate the newly opened Wayfarers Ale Society in Port Williams, Nova Scotia. The owners of this newly built craft brewery had an amazing vision for the esthetics on the outside of the building, but the taproom was a blank slate. I was more than happy to […]

Making Spirts Bright FREE printable

Each year I like to switch up my holiday decor, and since this is the first year of owning a restaurant and lounge, I thought adding a Holiday Bar Cart into the mix would be the perfect addition. When I saw everything Shutterfly had to offer in this year I couldn’t resist adding pieces from their […]

Mini Patio Makeover

June 11th, 2016 | Home Decor

Whew, how did it get to be mid June already?! We’re just starting to warm up here in Nova Scotia. They blackflies and mosquitoes have dissipated (just in time for the June bugs to arrive) and we can finally start to enjoy some outdoor living. Two years ago my brother (aka Captain Carpentry) helped add a back deck […]

Office equipment from Staples. Click for an amazing Before and After office makeover

Can you believe my restaurant has been open a month now? Time sure has a way of slipping through the hourglass when you’re busy as can be! The Union Street has had a really successful first month. It is mainly due to our awesome staff and incredible community support, but behind every successful day is […]

Restaurant bathroom makeover- mens and ladies looks

Whew, this Restaurant Bathroom Makeover was the biggest overhaul I think I’ve ever participated in… pssst, besides the painting I didn’t actually do much of the work, just the boss lady! At the first of the week I shared all the details of how the renovation rolled out. I came up with a vision and with the help […]

Restroom moodboard for a his and hers commercial space

I’ve been MIA for the last few weeks fixing up my newly opened restaurant The Union Street. I really wanted to trail you all along the journey, but when you cram 10 million projects into a tight deadline of 14 days I rarely had a minute to pick up my phone to check on my […]

Big bubble gum canvas print from Shutterfly

This girls bedroom decor was actually a long time in the making. I started doing the painting back at the end of September, but that same week our house got broken into, and it threw a wrench into the plan. Then it seemed I was right into holiday planning and the bedroom got put together but […]

Sleigh Rides, Firewood, Fresh Cut Trees, Free Silhouette Christmas Cut Files

This time of year when my crafting routine is in overdrive, I spend countless hours in front of the computer fiddling with Christmas Silhouette cut files. I love making images and fonts fit together, its a whole different creative side of me… and one that my husband doesn’t mind the mess of! My life has been a […]

We Believe vintage santa canvas- custom print from Shutterfly

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around the Fynes house! First up on the decorating list was the dining room.  I had the pleasure of creating my holiday home decor with Shutterfly this year. Shutterfly has so many products for every season, and since I wanted to get some custom pieces this year it […]

TV console built with Elmers wood glue

This past week my living room went under the knife. It was totally unplanned, but all seem to fall into place. Today I’m sharing the DIY TV console I built that got the ball rolling. Quite a simple design, it actually resembles my sons bookcase I built last month (not intentionally). The best part, is […]

Whew, this Modern Rustic Boy’s Bedroom Reveal has been a long time in the making. The space has been finsihe for a few weeks, but a little delay waiting for something to arrive in the mail, then a huge wrench thrown in the mix when our house was broke into. Anyhow, here we are a few weeks behind […]
